We’ve been having a lovely babymoon whilst PC has been home on holidays. I’ve been so spoilt, everyday he has washed the nappies, the continual pile of baby clothes and has taken care of all the umpteen details of running a household of twelve. Amongst it all we’ve found time to just lie and gaze at our girl and murmur to one another, “I can ‘t believe we have a girl!!”, we really, really can’t. Sadly PC returns to work on Monday and I’ll be returning to laundry detail.
I managed my first shopping trip today in search of pretty, girly dresses, hitting Target and Best & Less. Sadly dresses are not abundant amongst the newborn options, mostly choices are pants & tops or romper suits. The majority of dresses were white, after three boys I’m rather keen to see pink & more pink. I’ve been most delighted to receive a few pretty outfits from friends and today my sister sent a package of the most pretty dresses, there are more options in the City.
Yesterday I received an incredible gift from my friend Karen, a real gift of love and one that is greatly treasured already. Karen made a beautiful cot size quilt, and all in the space of 5 days!!!! When Bass was born Karen made a pinwheel quilt, she hadn’t planned on making a new quilt but when I had a girl she couldn’t resist. Aren’t friends the best!! Be sure to click over and see how beautiful this quilt is.
We experienced a heat wave today, so very, very hot. Temperatures reached 40C (104F) today though tomorrow will drop to 35C (95F). So hot I had to rescue the chocolate stash in the pantry as it was all turning to a puddle.
Can’t say my house de-clutter is still going strong, I started out well, made solid progress for a few days and then petered out. Rather frustrating as I only have two rooms to go, still I’m certain I will get back onto it sometime soon.
I resolved to take 10 photos daily this year and I’m off to a solid start. When I shared my goal with PC he remarked that would be 3000 photos for the year, sounds good to me:) What I’d really love is to be as good as a photographer as Sarah and Karen, a goal to aim for at least.
As Pam requested sharing another photo of our Bella, after all she’s my main photographic subject at present. Truth is though I’m struggling to capture just how gorgeous she is, any baby photo tips would be gratefully accepted.
